Food was okay, steak overcooked and Shepard's Pie was nearly all mashed potatoes. Service a little slow. Charged for sides of sauce, absolutely unacceptable at a moderately priced table service restaurant

Eaten and Iron Abbeh before, but this was the first time at the Loft (upper bar floor). They had cocktails only available at the Loft which i had no idea. Great server and drinks were great.

It was our first time at Iron Abbey. We ate dinner in the bar and really enjoyed it. My favorite beer was on tap - New Trail Broken Heel. What a treat! We will be back.

This is a good place to go with a crowd. We wanted to try the Brazilian kebabs but they don’t serve them on Saturday nights. Disappointed. Cool whiskey bar upstairs.

Amazing food and beer selection. Love the bottle shop in the Loft upstairs. we had a great kid free night out. We felt extremely comfortable in their covid procedures and they had plenty of spaced out seating inside and out. If it were closer to our house we would be there all the time.

Food was terrible start to finish.
Filet sliders and Brussel sprouts were cold
So disappointed
The chicken was rubber and the veggies were drenched in oil and mushy - Mediterranean chicken dish.

We sat at the patio during beautiful sunny day and enjoyed light beer .
Spinach dip was delicious but burger was way overcooked and muscles were tiny and tasteless .
Service was attentive and warm .

The service was impeccable (thank you Louis!) Great suggestions for the 2 flights of beer and the charcuterrie appetizer choices - we truly enjoyed both
The main dishes were Burgers (The Bison for DW and Portuguese Burger for YT) - just finger-lickin delicious!
We love Iron Abbey :)

Just fair. Nice place but the beer taps were dirty. You can taste it. They need to clean those taps. Also, the meat seemed spoiled. I got the brisket and got very sick. It smelled bad and tasted bad. Shameful.

This was our first experience at Iron Abbey and won't be our last. We just grabbed a quick, early dinner after work on Friday. Hubby got a draft beer and a brisket sandwich. I had the nachos (no added meat). The nachos were HUGE. Couldn't finish them all, but they were delicious. Server was prompt and attentive but never annoying.

Everything was good. Service was excellent. I had a minor issue with dinner. I ordered filet mignon. The filet was cooked perfectly and tasted great. The asparagus was extremely thin, over cooked, chewy and a bit bitter. I think the vegetable is out of season. The fried onion strings on top of the filet were soggy, limp, cold. The star of the dish is the meat but I would suggest leaving off the fried onions and using seasonal vegetables in the future.
The experience was stellar otherwise. My wife loved her fish and chips, and we enjoyed the dessert.
Drinks were a big thumbs up.

Bottomless mimosas were not good, wasn’t sure if there was even champagne in them. Service was very,
very slow. However, happy hour there is good. Just wouldn’t suggest breakfast. Food was cold.

All of the tables were appropriately spaced and made me feel very comfortable to be dining out during the pandemic. Our service with Louis was incredible and we had a great time being out. The menu wasn't too long and had great options, we enjoyed our meal.

We were taken a little earlier than our reservation time. We were offered outdoor seating immediately, but we chose indoor dining this visit. Our server. Ariel, we’re very friendly and efficient which added to our enjoyable visit. Food was good as well. The wings were well done as requested by my husband. It was a very enjoyable atmosphere and meal.

Server was ok. Could have checked on us a little more frequently and could have cleared the table more. Came for the Tomahawk. Was a bit disappointed. It was not served on the cool display everyone else was getting. It was placed in a large bowl for us and was swimming in a steak sauce. I would prefer my steak dry with the sauce on the side as optional. The mash was great. The veggies. Not so much. Great red sangria.

I guess we ordered the wrong plate. Ordered the Sampler for 2 with sirloin and other meats.
Sirloin was very chewy and it was the main part. We live very close and was very disappointed.

I really wanted to give this restaurant a higher rating, but to be honest, my food was quite average. Knowing that it is kind of a 'meat' place, I ordered the Filet, which was not the best cut. My potatoes had no flavor, but the asparagus was very good. The service was excellent, however, so I will go back one day and try a different entree.
